Hi. We are two friends. I am currently in 12th standard and my friend is in final year of commerce. Both of us have tremendous interest in defense – Army, Navy, Air-force. We are also active with the NCC unit of our college. Please guide us about how we can make a career in defense. And if in any case, we are not eligible or unfit for defense jobs, please tell us other parallel forces like police etc. where we can pursue our career.
With Commerce as a background, you can appear for the NDA exam for the Army wing. Your friend can enter after Graduation, the notification is published by UPSC under the aegis of CDSE for exams to be held in Mar/Apr and Sep/Oct. Selection procedure comprises of a written test, conducted by UPSC, followed by group test, psychological test and a personal interview conducted by the Service Selection Boards. The examination is held in February and September every year and the course commences from July and January. To enter the police force as an IPS, you can apply for the Civil Services (conducted by the UPSC) exams after graduation.
Hello! I want to become a chef. I am currently in standard 10th. I have already done many cooking classes and other certificate courses. I love cooking and experimenting with different dishes. But I don’t know how to become a chef. Hotel management includes everything, but if am only interested in the chef’s job then why waste time and money in learning other aspects of hotel management. Please tell me if there are other specialized or specific courses which are recognized for exclusive chef training.
